why not????? sure I wouldn't use em in strong wind or rough water, but I think they would be great for walk ins.

I was given some of the FUD decoys the other day. Haven't really looked at them yet. I guess they would be alright if you were trying to pack lightly. Same for the inflatable dekes. I guess I'd use them if I had to walk a long ways and I needed a light load.

A buddy of mine has fuds and they work just as well as any other decoy.

I have three dozen goose fuds and 2 dozen mallard fuds, personally the geese seem to work awesome in the water, even in rough wind they move around and look very lifelike, only problem is I tend to loose one once in awhile that the anchor dislodges and it goes for a swim down river, lost 4 over last 2 years. I do not hunt with the duck fuds anymore, just seems like theres something about them at least in my area that the ducks dont like, I use green head gear life size mallards mostly. The geese are nice because most of my hunting is done on public, hence forth trek in and out on foot, we use a sled for full bodies then each of us hang a dozen fuds on our belt, dont forget the hammer though, you'll need it to pound down the metal stakes on them. In the field you can move around all the heads and bodies to portray feeders/resters aggresive callers ect, I feel they work really well, partly because few people use them so my spreads look different then the next guys. Thats my two cents
